The atheist then accuses the Christian for throwing down what they call “god of the gaps” and dismisses the answer. How should the Christian respond to this?
Is God a god of our imaginations?
The origin of this objection comes from the influential German philosopher, Ludwig Feuerbach who pontificated this idea that God was made in the image of man and that God was a creation of the human mind. And then Sigmund Freud also contributed to this “A theological dogma might be refuted to a person a thousand times, provided however, he had need of it, he again and again accepts it as true.”

Can You Test the Existence of God Like You Can Test Air?
